Crafted For Comfort

Ziera has always been passionate about how their shoes fit and feel. Years of experience, and a deep knowledge of materials and the intricate mechanics of the foot, has enabled Ziera to develop our own shoe comfort technology.

Critical to achieving a great fitting shoe is the contour of the shoe mould. At the physical heart of our products lives the last (the mould we form footwear around). This leaves behind an invisible impression, a unique contouring which cradles the foot for all day comfort. We’ve been designing ‘lasts’ for over 70 years since our founders, two podiatrists, first started the company. Where most shoe companies use a standard universal mould, we specially design our own unique lasts to create maximum fit and comfort.

We believe the best fit and comfort are created using natural materials –such as leather that moulds to your feet – and designing with adjustability and versatility that add to a personalised fit. Ziera’s premium leathers, sourced from around the world endure 13 different laboratory tests to ensure that it's super soft yet tough enough for every day wear.

A major focus for Ziera is the wide range of orthotic friendly shoes with styles to suit any lifestyle. From womens casuals shoes to dress shoes, walking shoes to corporate classics; Ziera orthotic-friendly shoes have extra depth and a removable inlay to accommodate a custom orthotic.

But to be really good for feet, shoes need more than just depth. That's why we offer plenty of options with adjustable fit, generous width, roomy toe area, padded toplines, rocker soles, strong steel shanks and the support you need.

We love orthotics!

Ziera has a wide range of styles with removable footbeds that can be swapped out for custom orthotics. Click here to see our range of orthotic friendly styles.
